Experiments with Dipole Antennas
Kraftmakher, Yaakov
European Journal of Physics, v30 n6 p1391-1399 Nov 2009
Employment of a data-acquisition system for data collection and calculations makes experiments with antennas more convenient and less time consuming. The determined directional patterns of the dipole antennas of different lengths are in reasonable agreement with theory. The enhancement of the signal by using a reflector is demonstrated, and a variant of the Yagi-Uda antenna is explored. The experiments are suitable as laboratory works and classroom demonstrations, and are attractive for student projects. (Contains 2 footnotes and 6 figures.)
